It’s been a mellow day here at Postcards from Purgatory’s San Francisco office. Immediately upon waking I decided to abandon two books that I am reading and not enjoying (Lauren Groff’s The Monsters of Templeton and Gore Vidal’s Burr), and that decision made me feel very accomplished. Surely I deserved a full day off after all that exhausting book abandonment. I wrote a page and a half of a book review, but then I came to the part where I had to provide evidence to support my opinions, so I stopped. I will resume tomorrow, I think.
I am reading Richard Yates’ Disturbing the Peace, and it’s good.
